Sharpie Valentine’s Day Mug

Sharpie Valentine’s Day Mug

This Valentine's Day tutorial shows you how to make a themed Coffee Cup and Saucer.

What you need

Red or Pink Sharpie Pens
White Ceramic plate and saucer


Start by selecting a ceramic cup and saucer. Wash it and dry it. Next step is to think of a romantic notion to write onto the mug.

We went with “Love” and a dotted heart.

When you’re finished, just pop the mugs or plates into the oven (while the oven is still cold) and bring it up to 350°F (~175°C) for half-hour to set the design. Allow to cool. Do not be tempted to touch it.

Only Hand-wash to ensure the longevity of your design.

Lots of people are turning away from the “sharpie” projects. So far we have loved them. You could use ceramic pens or paints if you prefer.
